's that you attended and where the crowd sizes? guest: my first one was 1977, jimmy carter. i was a 20-year-old political science major and it was already on my bucket list to go to the inauguration. host: it was the last one on the east front of the capital. guest: absolutely. i think about the difference, maybe not so much the crowds. but it is the security situation. at that time, i stayed in a hotel on pennsylvania avenue. a friend had come with me. i think we just walked straight up pennsylvania avenue. i am not even sure we had a ticket. we stood behind the east front of the capitol and had a very good view. host: you could see the president directly. guest: absolutely. we were very close. after that, we just ran from the east front down it to pennsylvania avenue, a constitution, and watched the parade. so we got to see jimmy carter. he walked. we were so shocked and thrilled to see him do that, and part of the whole ceremony to me is the combination of pomp and populism. jimmy carter had that touch. host: professor lusane, you have written about african-americans in their american ex
president since jimmy carter has gotten out and hoofed it for at least part of the distance. our modern security age has placed some restrictions on that. let it be said that the city feels like a bit of a police state these last two days. erica hill is standing by at the newly renamed freedom plaza. erica, is everything locked down in advance of that behind you? >> it is fairly locked down. there is security to get into the area, brian. there have been a number of police officers, the park service police out all morning long going up and ask down. he would seen police, motorcycles, vehicles coming up and down. appearing to just sort of check on what's going on. people are, though, now starting to trickle into the area, to get their way into the stands here at freedom plaza. >> all right. willie geist is at the navy memorial. if you consider erica as our closest correspondent to when they make the turn at the white house, this puts willie a little closer to the capitol. good morning. >> good morning, brian. i'm about at the halfway point in this 1.2 mile stretch of road that takes us fr
.w. bush, aren't attending this inaugural. president -- former president bill clinton and jimmy carter are. we are waiting to see president clinton. stand by for that. also taking a closer look at the downside of winning another four years of the white house. it doesn't always go so well. the second-term curse, as some call it. that's coming up as well. first, though, inaugural flashback. >> let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> we all remember the phrase the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. but even more important than the phrase was the whole attitude that fdr had. he projected optimism and projected forward movement. people felt that's the mystery of leadership, that somehow the depression they were suffering, they weren't going to be alone anymore. they had a leader who was going to take care of it. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes.

companies to invest here is one of his priorities. >> there's former president jimmy carter and his wife. immediately before them, as you might have heard, melissa harris perry, jay-z. it's jay-z and beyonce is doing the national anthem. she did "america the beautiful" at the inaugural concert in 2009 but she will be at the main event singing right after the president's speech today. what you're looking at here, the motorcade here, the giant motorcade is heading into the immediate area of the inaugural platform outside the u.s. capitol. starting with ronald reagan in the 1980s, the inaugurations since then have all happened on the west front of the capitol, which is a very dramatic sight as you see there, looking down the mall toward the west front. there's an array of flags that will be on the stage. you can see there up in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, you see the five flags? the center flag is the american flag as it is now. the betsy ross flag is on the outside, the first one in, the second one and the fourth one, those are the flags that are not usually flown anywhere re
note of the presidents who are here. george bush senior and his son are not there today. jimmy carter is there today. bill clinton is there today. and, again, joe biden, one of the longest serving senators in the history. he may be making all the moves down to make himself in opposition as well. let's take a peek at what is going on. >> the honorable charles schumer. [ cheering ] >> mr. president, mr. vice president, members of congress, all who are present, and to all who are watching, welcome to the capital and to this celebration of our great democracy. this is the 57th inauguration of an american president. no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its majesty and, most of all, it is meaning. it is sacred and cautious and trusting a power from we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make one's heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h obama. [ cheering ] >> now, we know that we would not be here today were it not for those who stand guard around the world to preserve our freedom. to those in our armed forces,
the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up to the white house. and jimmy carter was the first president back in 1977 who actually walked this route. last year, president obama as president bush did got out partway through and walked to the white house and we expect that's probably going to happen again. this parade will be about a mile and a half long, include all sorts of interesting floats and of course, fabulous marching bands from the u.s. military, some civilian ones as well. this all started back in 1801 with thomas jefferson had a little bit of a parade that was taking to the inauguration. 1909 with james madison is when the first official pred happened and i think as megyn pointed out to you yesterday, bret. perhaps the most infamous one was 1973 with richard nixon when he ordered the park service to spray all the trees with basically a form of bird be gone, it was called roost no more. and didn't want them on the parade goers, and the pidgeons ate it and they were falling on top of people because they were sick. >> megyn: more like live no more. >> live
was inaugurated to seeing jimmy carter walk down when everyone thought the limo broke, he got out and walked. to see the -- as john pointed out, to see the reinauguration of our first african-american president, it is an exciting day for everyone in america. we broke from royalty hundreds of years ago now. we still like a little bit every once in awhile. this is our day for that. >> john: michael, you bring up very good points. the poor horse that had to drag taft's carriage all those years ago. this is almost 224 years george washington was sworn in as our first president. i think it is fitting we have michael hastings here and that you're spending the morning in portland. one of our most progressive cities. this is a president-elected largely due to the grassroots work of progressives and liberals. many of whom had issues with his policies and still have but i think it goes to show whereas the republican party, one could argue was identified this year by purity tests, the democratic party shows you could be completely in the tank for this president's election while still taking issue with
to the president. we just saw 88-year-old jimmy carter arriving on the scene. former presidents are almost always in attendance at these events, but today, george herbert walker bush and his son, george w. bush are not in attendance. the elder mr. bush has recently been released from a month-long stay in the hospital due to a respiratory ailment and so both bush families announced that they would not be able to attend because of the poor health of the elder george bush. the president after taking the oath of office will deliver his second inaugural address. following that, kelly clarkson will be singing "my country 'tis of thee." and these are the supreme court justices being led in, led by chief justice of the united states john roberts jr. who delivered the oath in 2009. here is the first lady as she is coming in to the capitol. as we mentioned earlier, she's wearig a dress and a coat by the american designer thom browne. navy blue we are told. there's justice sotomayor. nominated to the supreme court by president obama. she will deliver the oath of office to the vice president. justice elena k
and secretary of state hillary clinton and former president jimmy carter and wife roslyn. we are just minutes away from the arrival of, of course, the vice president, jill biden, and the president and first lady and their family. it's exciting. it's electric. we've got great weather, especially compared to four years or so here, and i have to say before the program sort of settled in, i saw more collegiality on the platform in terms of members of congress, both democrats and republicans, commingling, glad handing each other, coming up to the front of the rail, if you will, looking at the crowd, taking pictures, if you will. now, if only we can bottle that for the rest of the time here in office. again, great to be back on this perch again. by the way, in all those inauguration facts that you could look up, the one i thought was kind of amazing, the platform behind me, 10,000 square feet at a cost of $1.2 million to hold about 1,600 vips. of course, all the members of congress, the justices, the cabinet, et cetera. so you can't have an inauguration without some kind of a stimulus program. back
hoover. now, jimmy carter's been ex-president for 32 years. and what he has done with that, as well. you see the crowds crossing pennsylvania avenue. everyone gathering. the president will be coming to the capitol, starting around 10:40. >> we are told, people are given much clearer directions this year about where they go, when they can cross. that security has asked that apps are guiding everybody. people were stuck in a tunnel four years ago, and couldn't get to their destination. >> 2 million people came to the mall. under 1 million this time around. you see the crowd right there. the president and the first lady are inside the white house right now. earlier this morning, we got the first glimpse of the first lady's fashion and the daughters', as well. we see mrs. obama, just before they went into the church, st. john's episcopal church. >> american designer, thom browne, and j. crew and kate spade for the girls. tim gunn has been watching with us. tim, tell us what you've seen so far. >> good morning, diane. good morning, george. i've seen a thrilling, thrilling morning, i have to s
